With the new Buds, OnePlus is looking to make a splash on the budget wireless earbuds market, much like the company did with its OnePlus Nord for the midrange smartphone market. But are the OnePlus Buds the best overall option out there? I spent time with both the OnePlus Buds and Apple’s AirPods (2nd gen) in order to find out, while keeping in mind that the latter cost about $80 more.
Design and build quality
It’s not a stretch to say that the case of the Buds is suspiciously similar to the AirPods case.
